Anthony Davis Makes His Olympic Debut

Check out the full recap of USA’s 98-71 win over France at, but all you need to know about Anthony Davis’ Olympic Debut can be read below:

The U.S. team’s lead ballooned to 78-51 after three quarters, allowing coach Mike Krzyzewski to rest Bryant, James and Durant for most of the fourth quarter. With the game well in hand, Krzyzewski even gave 19-year-old Anthony Davis, the top pick in June’s NBA draft, his first taste of Olympic play.

In nine minutes of action, Davis played within himself and didn’t try to do too much. Davis scored 3 points, shot 1-of-2 from the field (with a dunk), and was also 1-of-2 from the free throw line. Davis also grabbed 3 rebounds, swatted away 1 block, and the NBC broadcast team had nothing but praise for the 19-year-old.

UPDATE: Davis even got a hug from First Lady Michelle Obama!

    Turning point in the game was Anthonys three points and key block. He is the fifth leading scorer on team USA.

    Omg Anthony was a beast his block was the best of the oylmpics. Eve, before coach K put him in Usa was struggling defensivly, then the unibrow came in the defense picked up. Enabling Kobe , Lebron to get going on offense. Coach K. prasied Ad and said had it not been for him they would have struggled and not won by as much way too go AD representing BBN.Cal prepared him well for this stage take heed all recruits.

    The nasty frenchmen surrendered as soon as AD entered the game. AD could be heard saying “don’t come in here with that weak shit frenchmen”.

I’ve been wondering alot about this kids schooling myself. Were theres smoke theres fire alot of the times. it’s been very tight lipped coming from the program as expected. Plus you always have too wonder with trying to recruit players late in the game for this season. We shall see in CAL WE TRUST GOD BLESS HIM.

    Sorry, #8-I know who you are. Don’t bring this kind of crap to this board. You have more than enough worries with your own team…

    Sorry, #13-I was wrong to question you. Just tired of hearing rumors that most likely aren’t true. I assume you are talking about Noel. He is trying hard and all I have heard is that he will be eligible.
